to winning back the jewish vote? next week the united nations general assembly takes place, palestinian statehood will be on the agenda, and they are looking to see how the president acts. >> reporter: it's whether or not it's a problem of perception or reality. what i can tell you is the obama campaign is actively reaching out to the jewish community certainly to all of their base, but to the jewish community to shore up support among jewish voters. here at the white house they're not saying anything about losing support among jewish voters. instead, they're trying to reinforce the notion that the administration remains a strong supporter of israel and jay carney, in fact, repeated several times this week the endorsement, strong endorsement, from israel's prime minister that the u.s. remains strong or this administration has been committed to israel's security. so, that's the message that they're trying to push forward. but as you pointed out, all of this coming into sharper focus as the president heads to the u.n. general assembly next week and this issue of palestinian statehood will

president ahmadinejad is scheduled to address the united nations. and once again, appear on the world stage. >> well certainly one of the motivations likely is that as ahmadinejad comes to the united nations' general assembly next week or so, that he will have something positive to ride on. >> sources within iran's government tell nbc news the release is expected, still expected within the next coming days. the story is on the front page of the impending release of every newspaper in iran. and in some of the newspapers, the hikers are being called spies, and the question is being asked, why would iran release them now? matt, back to you. >> it's a tough story to follow. we thank you for your reporting on that and appreciate it very much. it's now six minutes after the hour. here's savannah. >>> now to politics and the renewed firestorm over a controversial vaccine. during monday's republican presidential debate, congresswoman michele bachmann took a political swipe at governor rick perry, over a controversial amendment that would have required teenaged girls to get the hpv vaccine. >> she n

the two hikers with him to the united states as he comes to address the united nations. that, of course, would be a way to be seen as more benevolent leader. it's worth noting that sarah shourd was released one week before he addressed the general assembly last year. seth doane, cbs news, new york. >>> a bus driver is being blamed for a deadly crash at a rail crossing. the bus driver tried to beat the nonk plane but he was way too late. what you don't see in the video, a second train going the other way also crashing into the train's derailed cars. in all, 11 people, including the bus driver, were killed. and more than 200 injured. >>> a final report on last year's bp oil spill may be released today, but some details are leaking out and they don't look good for bp. after the deep raurt horizon rig sp exploded nearly 5 billion barrels of oil spilled into the gulf. bp didn't reveal it to investigators for up to a year. >>> and the gulf coast is still suffering the effects of that oil spill. tropical storm lee stirred up tar balls that are still washing up on beaches in louisiana and alaba
.n. general assembly this morning. >> with the israelis and with the palestinians, the president will be able to say very directly why we believe that action with the united nations is not the way to achieve palestinian state. >> reporter: abbas has been trying to line up support before he asks the security council on friday to formally recognize a palestinian state. the u.s. would push for peace talks with israel. last year, president obama had high hopes for a two-state solution. >> when we come back here next year, we can have an agreement that will lead to a new member of the united nations. sovereign state of palestine leaving in peace with israel. >> reporter: while u.s. officials say they can't stop abbas from asking for statehood, they at least hope he'll postpone his plans. a delay could give mediators time to jump-start the negotiations. in the west bank, even talk of a separate palestinian state is sparking new clashes. palestinians youth hurled rocks at u.s. soldiers on tuesday, while in another village, hundreds of israeli protesters marred in protest. >> this is our country. >>
a member of the united nations but it will become an observer if the general assembly votes. this will get them access to membership and it is a step forward. i would not be in favor of this if united states had put forward any comprehensive peace proposal as president obama has announced. one, a freeze on all is really settlements and also based on the 1967 borders. if they would put forward that proposal as a basis point of negotiation, both the palestinians and the carter center would be in favor of peace talks based on those issues. the israelis are not willing to accept those proposals and president obama is not willing to make that effort. as an alternative to the stalemate, we reluctantly would support the palestinian move for recognition in the general assembly. >> one final question, what can you in the carter center do to help educate the members of congress on working in developing countries with respect for the individuals rather than going in with a heavy hand? >> nothing. [laughter] i do not think congress is receptive to any and vice from the carter center. i still maintain
to the security council, probably, but certainly to the general assembly where all the members of the united nations have a chance to vote. my guess is that the palestinians will get 140 or 150 nations who will vote for their becoming a state. this will not change the occupation of palestine by the israelis, and it will just make -- if the united states does veto the security council, then they will not become a fully recognized member of the united nations, but they will become an unofficial recognized observer, and this would give them certain access to membership in international organizations, and it would be a step forward. i would not be in favor of this if the united states had put forward any sort of comprehensive peace proposal. as president obama has announced on two major occasions, one a freeze on all israeli settlements inside palestine, and also, based on the 1967 borders -- if the united states had put forward that proposal as a basis for negotiation, then both the palestinians and the carter center would be in favor of peace talks based on those two issues, but the israelis a
, and the mechanisms of the united nations. the composition of the security council is unjust, and therefore, a changing and structuring of the united nations are considered as the basic demand of the nation's that must be addressed by the general assembly. during the last sessions i emphasize the importance of this issue, and called for the designation of this decade as a decade of collective global management. and that the capacity and resources must be modernized. i reiterate my proposal, that through international cooperation, efforts are committed and world leaders -- to the assistance on justice and support, of all the other nations. we can expedite the building of a common, large future. this movements is presently on the rightful path of creation. with the assurance of the future of humanity. a future that will be billed when humanity initiates to tread the path of the divine profitsp, under the leadership of imam, the ultimate savior of mankind and the inheriter to all divine messengers and the few. generation of our great prophet. the creation of a supreme an ideal society, with th

at united nations. today's address by the iranian president ahmadinejad was certainly no exception. for 30 minutes he lambasted the united states and its western allies, prompting a mass walkout by many diplomats in the general assembly. what is different this year is ahmadinejad's standing at home in iran, we're taking a closer look. cnn's brian todd working the story for us. what's going on with ahmadinejad inside iran? >> reporter: wolf, analysts say he's had internal struggles with the man who is once his chief backer, supreme leader. ahmadinejad needs to build capital at home and in the broader middle east, and observers say speeches like this help him do that, even if many find them outrageous. it was classic ahmadinejad. less than seven minutes in, iran's president blasted the u.s. and other western powers, though not by name. >> translator: who abducted forcefully tens of millions of people from their homes in africa and other regions of the world during the dark period of slavery. who used the mysterious september 11th incident as a pretext to attack afghanistan and iran. >> repor
for statehood and that didn't work. then the administration tried to shift it to general assembly, that failed as well. this is this a double defeat for president obama's approach? >> it doesn't lood gook. a key bedrock component has been to breathe light into the united nations. you recall that when we went to war in libya, the administration did not seek approval from congress but did consult and seek approval from the united nations but this episode would seem again to illustrate the limitations of the u.n. does anybody think that palestinian authority would be durable peace between israel and palestinian or more of a symbol that the u.n. can't solve any of the international crisis that occur. >> gregg: how do you think the arab world would react to the u.s. veto? >> some of it is overstated. saudi official, they wrote it would imperil the special relationship between u.s. and saudi arabia. the fact is there is no special relationship between the u.s. and saudi arabia. a lot of people around the world think if you solve israel you solve terrorism. think it's backwards. you have external for
